Whether you’ve got your eye on potatoes, you’ve got a head for lettuce, or you’re sweet on sugar snap peas, the Boulder Farmers Market is the perfect place to spend a few productive hours among produce.
As the weather warms, flowers bloom, and fruits and vegetables ripen, the 2022 season is ready to kick off.
So, what do you need to know before you go? Read on to explore the most common questions and answers:
Where is the Farmers Market Located?
One vital piece of information to know before you head out the door is where you’re headed. The Boulder Farmers Market is centrally located in Boulder on 13th Street between Canyon and Arapahoe. It’s close to the Boulder Creek path for those interested in walking or pedaling over. Anyone driving a car in anticipation of leaving with a trunkful of treasures can park at Boulder High School, various parking garages, or street parking (if you can find it).
When is the Farmers Market Open?
The Boulder Farmers Market opens for the season on April 2nd and stays open until November 19th. It is open every Saturday from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. No tickets are needed and walk-up customers are always welcome.
What Kinds of Things Does the Market Offer?
This market is packed full of local vendors selling fruits, vegetables, arts and crafts, wares, food, flowers, and plants. It offers traditional treats, eats, home goods, and supplies as well as items that aren’t so traditional. The market also features live music, children’s activities, artisan shows (during the second week of each month), and so many free samples it puts Costco to shame.
What are the Rules?
With COVID settling down, there are no capacity limitations at this year’s market, although the outdoor location allows people to social distance if they feel uncomfortable. It’s important to note that this “more the merrier” mantra only applies to people; pets aren’t allowed on the event’s grounds.
From supporting local growers to stocking up on food supplies, the Boulder Farmers Market is a wonderful way to grocery shop in the great outdoors. Whether you stop by for a few items or make a morning of it, a good time is in the bag.
